TLC to debut new 'Hoarding: Buried Alive' reality series on March 14


By Christopher Rocchio, 03/11/2010 

TLC has announced Hoarding: Buried Alive, a new Hoarders-like reality series that will follow people who suffer from extreme hoarding, will premiere Sunday, March 14 at 10PM ET/PT.

Each one-hour episode will follow two different obsessive hoarders as they attempt to deal with the condition that has impacted both their personal and professional lives.

The hoarders will undergo an intervention and receive help from therapists and organizers in an attempt to get their lives back on the right track.

"Hoarding: Buried Alive follows extreme cases of hoarding", said TLC programming executive Nancy Daniels.

"But the deeper appeal is that almost everyone can relate to the habit of collecting stuff and the difficulty of parting with possessions. The series appeals to the hoarder in all of us."

Hoarding: Buried Alive's format is similar to that of A&E's Hoarders, which premiered last August and also follows people who are addicted to hoarding. Its second season subsequently premiered in November.

Hoarders isn't the first A&E reality show format that TLC has decided to copy, as the network also ordered Addicted -- a new Intervention-like series -- in January.  Addicted will premiere Wednesday, March 17 at 9PM ET/PT.

In addition, TLC premiered Cake Boss -- which follows the staff of a bake shop in Hoboken, NJ -- in April 2009. The reality series is similar to Food Network's Ace of Cakes, which premiered in 2006 and centers on a Baltimore, MD bakery.
